CompArte San Diego July 10-16, 2016


We call on anyone who practices art to contribute rebellious art, resistant against capitalism, to CompArte San Diego during the week of July 10-16, 2016. Capitalism uses exploitation, displacement, repression, and disdain to attack us. CompArte San Diego is the local version, here on Kumiai land, of the Zapatista Festival and Sharing Exchange ‘CompArte for Humanity.' The location for CompArte San Diego is the streets of our barrios, classrooms, gathering places, anywhere we claim as our communities.

To participate in CompArte San Diego: However/wherever you or your group or collective practice rebellious art between the week of July 10-16, document the art and upload the images, audio and/or video to --Read More--

Update from the EZLN: But we Zapatistas think that supporting the teachers is so important that we have decided…
First: To suspend our participation in the CompArte festival, in the caracol of Oventik as well as in CIDECI in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, which will be held July 17-30, 2016.
Second: To donate all of the money and food we have saved for our transportation to and from Oventik and CIDECI and for provisions while we are there to the teachers in resistance. Read More

POP art, not pills!


This last November, Dr. BBBBB’s office said it would refer me to pain management. It has not done so. The options proffered by emergency rooms are opiates, valium, or lots of muscle relaxers and aspirin while I wait for a physical therapist’s assessment and treatment plan that considers this month’s diagnosis by one of my neurologist’s: Ehlers-Danlos. With the exception of last weekend’s intravenous morphine at the hospital, I have opted for aspirins since the car accidents happened in December 2013 and January 2014.

Tijuana Hosts Radical Book Fair


Last weekend indy and diy publishers converged in Tijuana for the first Feria de Publicaciones Independientes (Independent Publishing Fair) hosted at and around Raices Infoshop, off Avenida Revolución opposite the Arch of Tijuana.

The three day festival featured workshops and discussions on feminism, anti-border activism, anarchism, political prisoner solidarity, and film screenings, photo exhibition, bike ride, and live art and music. Zinesters and other indy media publishers from Mexico and southwestern US tabled with a variety of comics, writings, and art.

And vegan donuts. Oh boy were there vegan donuts.

The fair was hosted by Raices Cocina Vegana, a vegan cafe, social center, and radical literature space/infoshop, and Tijuana Comida no Bombas (Food Not Bombs), a collective that gathers and cooks food to give away.

indymedia vlntr

Joey Molinaro and his east coast buddies, Eric Alexander and Lucio Menegon traveled across America in an old diesel stopping at rad spaces and "wallstreet occupations" along the way. On Jan. 7 in San Diego, Molinaro visited the Purple Haus with his unique blend of violin and grindcore, his friends also brought along their guitars and played an interesting mix of acoustic heavy metal love ballads and technical acoustic rock n roll.
